A wire-free Wa­ter Street?

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Will 2017 be the year Wa­ter Street’s elec­tri­cal and com­mu­ni­ca­tions wires be fi­nally all run un­der­ground?

Ku­dos to the vi­sion­ary plan­ners and de­ci­sion mak­ers who have re­cently made the sig­nif­i­cant fi­nan­cial and in­fras­truc­ture in­vest­ments to im­prove the aes­thet­ics of the ma­jor­ity of Wa­ter Street in down­town Charlottetown.

Our “Birth­place of Con­fed­er­a­tion” his­toric area will, with­out a doubt, now at­tract greater ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

An­other re­mark­able achieve­ment on Wa­ter Street has al­most been achieved. From Queen Street go­ing east to past the Board­walk Pro­fes­sional Cen­tre there are al­most no over­head wires. Only a few Mar­itime Elec­tric poles re­main at and near the cor­ner of Wa­ter and Prince Streets with un­sightly wires slung across the road­way.

Three old poles and their dread­ful ar­ray of wires are all that re­main to­wards mak­ing Wa­ter Street over­head-wire free. This should be a sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone to­wards the on­go­ing ef­forts to “Make Our Home­town Beau­ti­ful.” Ray Brow, for­mer owner, 140, 220 Wa­ter Street, Charlottetown
